Closed Purebred Cases :

Please Read the Following Carefully:
While we always take into consideration an adopter's preferences, placements are made with the welfare of the dog as the primary consideration so that each Saluki is placed in the most appropriate home for his particular needs. This may include a preference for considering homes that are geographically closer to the dog, to avoid undue travel stress. Each dog's individual needs, and matching it to the best possible home to meet those needs, will always be STOLA's priority. <<more important information...>>

Name: Bianca

Complimentary Listing for Middle East Rescue

My name is Bianca. I am an attractive, 4 year old smooth Saluki from Doha, looking for my forever home. I just love to be with my human friends, but I really am not so fond of other dogs (or cats). I prefer to be an only child. My foster moms are always trying to get me to be more social with other dogs, but I am just not interested. I love to cuddle with my human buddies, but I prefer keeping my paws off limits. I enjoy playing and taking walks with my two legged friends, but I do have a pretty heavy prey drive, so sometimes I get a little over excited. I guess I should fess up and admit, I have been known to bite a few leashes in half when I get the chance. I am also told I am pretty talented because I can climb trees, and jump fences, when they are not at least 6 ft high. I love my foster Moms, but I need a home of my own. They love me too, but I do not get along so well with their other four legged ones. It would be ideal if my new person understood all about Salukis, and they would be happy with me being their only four legged mate.

Did I mention I currently live in Texas, but I am willing to relocate?

If you would like to find out more about me, please contact Lori @ ayarcl@sbcglobal.net. ​

Bianca is a complementary listing for Middle East Rescue​.

Name: Red Bird

Case #: 400E

Red Bird is approximately a 5-7 year old spayed female Saluki. Poor sweet Red Bird has had a rough go of it so far, since she was not well cared for by her previous owners.

She will do best in a household that she can settle in at her own pace, so she can have time to feel safe and trust her family.

Red Bird seems to be a bit food aggressive with other animals, but that might be because she may not have had enough to eat in her early years.

She is not cat, or small animal safe. We think Red Bird will do best as an only dog, because she tends to play a little too rough, and the other dogs at her foster home, do not want to interact with her due to her rough play habits.

Red Bird really seems to want to love, and be loved so much. Red Bird is making such progress each week in her foster home. She is starting to enjoy running, playing with toys, even wagging her tail as she takes treats from her foster family's hands.

Red Bird seems to thrive on human attention, and she will make a nice companion for her adopters once she has the chance to bond with them. In fact she can be quite the cuddler with those she loves.

Status: Applications for adoption are currently being accepted for Red Bird. Red Bird is being fostered in New York. For more information, or to request an application, please contact Lori Doering @ ayarcl@sbcglobal.net

  Case #: 405E

Name: Confidential case

Statistics: Spayed black and white feathered female, just under 2 years old

Description: This lovely girl has a very active, gorgeous, fun loving personality. She is full of energy and affection once she knows you. She likes to play, and currently her favorite toys are her soccer ball, and Frisbee.

She requires secure, 6 ft fencing, and an experienced Saluki home. She is not cat, or small animal safe. She will likely do best as an only dog if her person is active with her. Otherwise, she seems to do best with a higher energy male Saluki/sight hound. She plays a bit too rough with her fosters females.

She will make a wonderful companion for the right adopter.

She is being fostered on the East Coast currently. It is preferred that her adopter is located close enough to her foster in MA, to be able to pick her up from her foster home.

Applications for adoption are currently being accepted for this special young Saluki. For more information, or to request an application, please contact Lori Doering @ ayarcl@sbcglobal.net

She will need an experienced Sighthound home with someone who will be patient kind and gentle with her. She has had very little human interaction for some time now.

Case #: 508-M

The two male Salukis in the Austin shelter were picked yesterday and have been named Willem & Simmon. Please feel free to circulate their photos in an effort to find a breeder.

They appear to both be very young, +/- 2 years old.

Willem is a intact smooth fawn grizzle male with sabling.

Simmon is an intact smooth gold male.

They are microchipped now...but were dropped off at the shelter with no microchip and the people who left them gave no information regarding each boy. What I am told by our volunteer & foster is that are both very sweet, socialized, happy Salukis with few house manners! (She is definitely working on that!) They appear to be crate-trained and although a bit thin, not alarmingly so and actually in pretty good shape. Both were heartworm negative.

They will be run through a battery of tests and neutered and ready for a home pretty soon.

They are very sweet boys and will be wonderful companions for some lucky person! Please contact me with any questions. taossalukis@gmail.com

Name: Kismet

Case #: 428-M

Kismet is a young male, +/- 18 months old, feathered sable red Saluki that came to STOLA by following an animal control truck that had picked up a few of his Greyhound buddies all the way into the Animal Control compound… quite ready to be rescued, we think!

Kismet is not good with other dogs or small animals and must go to a home without other pets. He adores people, is very attentive, and just wants his own person. If you can foster or adopt Kismet, please contact Janet: taossalukis@gmail.com

Kismet is ready to go to a new home. He is being fostered in North TX, currently.

We are looking for an active home, with a large securely fenced yard for Kismet.

Adopted July 2017

Case#: 509-M​

Simmon is a super sweet saluki that bonds quickly with people and loves meeting other dogs. He loves cuddling up on the couch, or being active outdoors: walking, hiking, jogging - Simmon is game for anything! In the house, he keeps a close eye on what you are doing, and always wants to be in the same room with you. Simmon’s motto is, “If I fits, I sits!” and if the only bed available is a cat bed, well, that’s where he’ll be.

Since being rescued earlier this year, Simmon has adjusted very well to being a house dog, and has excellent house manners in his foster home. Simmon has exhibited some separation anxiety in his foster home, but with exercise and a consistent schedule, he has improved dramatically. His foster mom will work with his adopters to ensure a smooth transition for Simmon to his new home.

Simmon would love to have a home with a human(s) that will spend loads of time snuggling with him, telling him how beautiful he is, feeding him snacks, and going for walks. Simmon will need to be in a home with at least one other dog. At first glance, he may look elegant and dignified, but he also has a strong silly side, so a sense of humor is a must!

Visit STOLA.org to fill out an adoption application for Simmon!

Shane 512-M


Shane is an 8 yr old male neutered Smooth Saluki who was surrendered to county animal control in the Phoenix area in February. Not much is known about his background but he was an owner surrender due to finances. He is a bit jumpy with loud noises and unsure movements but recovers well. He seems to be house-trained and will use a doggie door, although his foster takes him out on the leash a few times a day as he is overwhelmed by loud noises in neighbor yard. His foster home reports that he is as sweet as can be and is settling in and becoming more and more comfortable every day.

He seems to get along with all sizes of dogs; however, small children might just be too overwhelming for him -- at least until he comes out of his shell.

He settles well in the car, too.

Shane will thrive in a home that will give him patience, love and attention. You can touch his feet (nails are slowly getting attention as well!!) and is starting to come up to his foster mom for attention ... especially if you have the leash in hand.

He is a very sweet boy who will settle in as a wonderful companion ... and he is simply beautiful, as well!

Case # 512-M (Breeder Assist)

Hemi is a lovely 8 year old male Saluki (soon to be neutered) that needs a home preferably as an 'only dog'. He does not get along with other male dogs and is not trustworthy with small animals.

He quite possibly would be OK with females. His breeder says he is a sweet, loving boy, that wants to be by your side all the time.

Contact Janet Noll taossalukis@gmail.com for more information if you feel you can offer this boy a wonderful home or perhaps a temporary foster home.

Napoleon & Foxy

...are STOLA rescues from about 7 years ago. They were adopted by a lovely couple in Dallas and sadly, both have passed away. These two dogs have been loved and cared for many years and we hope to keep them together, if possible.

They are both neutered and microchipped. They are undergoing vet care as their caregiver had been ill for sometime and we want to make sure both healthy and free of disease. If you can offer these sweet Seniors a home, please contact Janet: taossalukis@gmail.com

Napoleon 511-M

male neutered

Napoleon is the sweetest Saluki one could ever meet. He is everyone's best friend. The kind of dog that is right beside you. He is about 8 years old. STOLA rescued him as a puppy. It is easy for him to gain weight so keep an eye on him. He loves walks, runs and bicycle runs. His salt and pepper face with brown eyes will really melt your heart. All he wants is someone to love him and he only wants to do what you want to do.

Foxy 510-M

female, spayed

Foxy is a Saluki x Ibizan cross and loves running next to a bike as well as short walks to stretch her legs. She is a natural hunter and stalks squirrel and other critters for fun. Foxy also was adopted as a puppy and recently turned 9 years old. She is extremely shy and takes some time to get to know you. Prone to bolting if doors are left open and she can easily escape most harnesses/collars so she should always have a martingale collar. She likes a cushy rug or plush bed to lay on. Foxy loves being completely covered in blankies. A mysterious sweetheart with a pack mentality and is quite a dominant female.

Case # 513-M

Apollo is a lovely feathered Saluki, 6-1/2 years old, male/neutered and we need a home or foster home for him as soon as possible. He is currently in North Carolina and STOLA/his current home can help transport him, if necessary.

Apollo is a sweet, loveable boy that needs a home that will be active with him. In his current home, he tries to intimidate some of the racing dogs he lives with by chasing them down. It sounds like 'the chase' kicks Apollo's prey drive into high gear!

From his current home:
He loves to lay on the couch or just go for a stroll with you. He is house broken and crate trained. He travels well. He is not just an aggressive dog at all. He does show barking and lunging at a fence for dogs he does not know. 

His ears had to be shaved lately as he walks the woods with all our dogs and gets seeds in his feathering. He is not bad about getting his toes trimmed. He eats well. He does like to run the lure and could be run in singles if an owner so desired, or he could be a couch potato. Once he knows you he likes to be petted by you...he does not mind brushing. He listens to the words "Leave it" when he is about to do something you do not want him to do. He gives attention to your eyes and sits for a treat. He likes his crate. Apollo could fit in an only dog home, or a home with just a few dogs. He has lived with small dogs all his life, a Boston and two Chinese Cresteds and has never bothered them at all. He is neutered and gets along with unneutered boys unless they are running the field and he wants to run them down. He has never seen a cat.

This is a very sweet Saluki that is not an aggressive dog in general and does get along with the girls. He is not a fence jumper, he walks nicely on leash.  

Please help us find a home or foster home as soon as possible! If you have an interest in this beautiful boy, please contact Janet:  taossalukis@gmail.com
